About me

Hi! My name is Inyong. I live in Amsterdam with my wife and two kids, and I work as a Group Product Manager at a tech company in Amsterdam. I love to read, talk and write about product and tech-related topics. I also write essays about career and life abroad(far away from South Korea, my homeland). I usually write personal blog posts in Korean, my mother tongue, but you can use Google Translator if you want to get to know more about me and my thoughts. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Outside of work, I co-founded a human rights NGO Asian Voices Europe to fight against anti-Asian racism in 2020 after the outbreak of Covid-19, and I am now helping a local football club to train U9(under 9) Youth players as a volunteer trainer and a team coach. (Photo below)
